Just wondering, does your mom or her side of the family have any mitochondrial related issues?

Have you had any genetic testing to figure out the specific mutation(s) affecting your mitochondria? Don't know of any in particular. Just wondering. Mitochondrial DNA comes only from the mother but lots of nuclear DNA is also responsible for proper functioning of mitochondria.

Benefit is that you can address issues early on. Negative is you learn average lifespan for someone with your specific condition.

I'd hesitate to do any of this without consulting with your physician.
